I just returned from Boston, as I mentioned yesterday. Possibly the coolest thing that we did was take a tour of Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox. The bestest part of the tour was that we got to walk on center field near the green monster! I am not a serious baseball fan though I do follow a few teams, including the Red Sox (I think it is held over from my days in university in Boston). I am not an expert and I don’t pretend to be. One thing that I like about baseball is that there is always something new to learn and the more that I understand the game, the more there is to appreciate.
I will confess that one of the reasons that I am trying to increase my baseball proficiency is because my grandmother (aka Grandma) loved baseball. She was a Dodgers. I’ve been thinking a lot about Grandma lately and missing her very much. I think that trying to learn more about baseball is a way that I can honor my grandmother in some way. When I am watching a baseball game or reading statistics that I only sort of understand it makes me feel closer to her. It might not make sense to anyone else except me and I’m okay with that.
Grandma, I love you and I miss you everyday.
